Troy Chowderfest - October 9th, 2016

Taste the best chowder in the Capital Region at the 9th Annual Troy Chowderfest in Downtown Troy!

On October 9th, cast your vote for the People's Choice best local chowder after sampling your share of chowders from over 30 area restaurants! 

One dollar gets you one ticket, which gets you one 4-ounce cup of chowder. This year, there's a limit of 20 tickets per person.

These restaurants must use local fresh ingredients in their recipes, so visitors will enjoy not only the freshest product, but will also be benefitting local business. 

Prizes are awarded for best seafood, vegetarian, most original and overall favorite – judged by a secret panel of local restaurant critics. Festival-goers are able to vote on the coveted 'People's Choice' award.
